How can giving back be about empowerment and having fun? That's the question we asked ourselves when we planned the second event of the year, this time in collaboration with our inspiring Role Model Bryna Carracino and her company REHAB NYC.
We gathered in the basement of the Lululemon HUB Seventeen at 5th avenue in New York city and decided to come together to sweat and have fun, but with the bigger purpose of empowering each other and doing good. Everyone helped to pitch in and together we were able to give 42 years of clean drinking water to people in central Africa, by donating all the money to Water For Good. Wooop!!
The scheduled was filled with meditation, sweat, food and a good vibes and our biggest mission, to have everyone leave with a big smile, was definitely accomplished!
Sometimes we need to remind ourselves to slow down and to truly value the beauty in each moment, and also to remember to feel good about who we are and the power we have to make a change in this world. This Saturday, in a basement filled with beautiful souls who wanted to encourage and inspire each other, we got that one down!
A big thank you to all of our sponsors who made this event come together. Thank you Yuhme for gifting your amazing sugarcane bottles as raffle prizes, thank you Pangea Organics for your natural beauty giveaways, and thank you Lululemon Hub 17 for lending us your space. Also a huge thank you to Tyme Food for fueling us afterwards with your nutritous and delicious takeout food, and to Core for keeping us hydrated!
"Happiness is connected to health. You can't have one without the other"
- Sandrina Bencomo, Role Model
We're also so proud to represent models who are passionate in what they do and who want to share their knowledge and passion with their peers. So a big thank you to Sandrina Bencomo who talked about how important it is to take care of ourselves and our bodies, and to Renee Peters for telling us about the mission behind Fashion Revolution Week and for sharing all the events coming up (April 23 - 29)! Kristina Cheraneva also spoke about her mission Mindful Models and how she want to bring mental health and mindfullness into the modeling world.
We of course also want to say THANK YOU to everyone who came and we are so blessed for being surrounded by such awesome and inspiring people. Our goal is to raise the level of awareness and to create new real friendships amongst our newest crowd. We love our Role Model family and we cannot wait to see what the future has to bring (but we're pretty sure it's bright!)
